Taken from the IMDB: Insurance salesman Albert Tuttle arrives at the Cyrus J. Rutherford estate to sell the millionaire some life insurance. Rutherford is already dead and his heirs have gathered at the mansion to hear the reading of the will. Rutherford's will won't be read until he is properly entombed and the heirs are forced to stay on the premises or be denied their inheritance. Tuttle soon finds himself mixed up in shenanigans involving Rutherford's niece, secret passages, a missing body and murder.

To bad people have stopped enjoying entertaning movies.
Now they need half hour car chases and giant robots.
These movies were fun and left you feeling good.
I sure am glad we have the Archive Org. Thanks
Subject: Screwball mystery
A not bad whodunnit which is clearly played for laughs, this movie keeps the pace moving to the end.
Well made and played.
Subject: Lyle Talbot
was also a regular playing Joe,Ozzie's friend in the long running sitcom The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Good movie here.

An eccentric millionaire's unread will, and a mansion full of contentious heirs. What better time for a life insurance salesman to show up, especially if he's played by Alex "Tin Man" Haley. Toss in a wandering corpse and butler Bela Lugosi constantly trying to serve everybody rat-poison-laced coffee, and you have the fixins for a comic who-done-it in the old dark house mold. All we need is a thunderstorm. Aha! There it is now! Jean Parker is the damsel in peril. The ubiquitous Lyle Talbot is on hand in a supporting role. This one is fun. CAST NOTE: Either as a leading man or character actor, Lyle Talbot appeared in more than 400 productions, including "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and "Glen or Glenda" Needless to say he shows up aplenty here at the Archive.
Subject: Enjoyable fun movie
Good late night movie fare, I'd say.
